Biofloc might not be a good fit for something as sensitive as shrimp. Nitrate accumulation can be a big problem if too much is used and/or the shrimp can't eat fast enough. Also, you would have to pick which shrimp you use biofloc with very carefully, because additional alkalinity is often necessary to get the biofloc to thrive. Depending on where you live, biofloc can take a nosedive during the winter and rejuvenate again in the spring, so you might want to watch out for that. I imagine that a nano tank wouldn't be the best place to try it out - a large tank might be better so that nitrate accumulation won't kill off your shrimp very quickly if it starts to occur.
